(CNN) - As scandal threatens to envelop Gov. Chris Christie back in New Jersey, he's spending the weekend in Florida, helping Republican Gov. Rick Scott fundraise around the state.
It’s been more than a week since allegations that a massive traffic jam in the town of Fort Lee was the result of road closures on George Washington Bridge as political retaliation from Christie's team against the town’s mayor.
Christie's weekend is packed with stops in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach. But it will be hard to say whether the scandal has dampened his star power, as all the meetings are closed-door.
Traveling with Christie, Scott has shown no shyness in sticking up for him.
Scott told CNN affiliate WSVN that Christie "did the right thing. He apologized. He went to the community and apologized. And I look forward to seeing him."
As chairman, Christie will also raise money for the Republican Governors Association and network with potential donors who could be key players if Christie decides to run for president in 2016.
The main political event is Saturday night at the home of billionaire Ken Langone, the co-founder of Home Depot.
Langone told CNN he's been flooded with requests to meet the governor, scandal or not.
However, Democrats didn't miss a chance to sound off on the Christie scandal.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in Florida following Christie's every move and hit the governor over the fact that all his campaign events were private.
"I think that means that Chris Christie doesn't want to answer any questions or Rick Scott doesn't want to be seen with Chris Christie in public – probably a little of both," Wasserman Schulz told CNN.
Lenny Curry, Florida's Republican Party chairman, accused Democrats of trying to turn Christie's visit into a circus.
"I'd say Chris Christie apologized. Chris Christie took action. He's the head of the Republican Governors Association, and he's down here doing his job, and that's raising money to make sure that Rick Scott gets re-elected."
